Location: Mountain Point, Virgin Gorda
On the fourth day of the camp, we had an early start of 6:30 am. We took out the secondary and primary anchors, and we motored to a different point. We had a breakfast of bagels and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. After breakfast, we learned how to tie 7 different knots and learned how to set up scuba gear, and got to jump in the ocean a lot; I think out of all of us, Bailey jumped in the most times. Our chefs were Ava and Johnathan; they made us a great lunch of sandwiches where James and I had our special ham cheese and honey sandwich. After lunch, Vale and James, our deckies, cleaned up all the lunch while the rest of us did our assigned jobs. We got to meet Chili’s sister after lunch today, too, as she came over in a dinghy to say hi from afar! After lunch, we broke off into groups of 4 and headed out to wakeboard with our staff members Emma and Margaux (who took some awesome photos of us), hence the name, “the waking day.” My group was me, James, Chloe, and Miranda; we all cheered each other on while we tried to get up while being pulled by the boat. Miranda got up the best And stayed up for so long. This was my favorite part of the day because it was my first time wakeboarding, and I got up! So many of us, like Milla, Tristan, Griffin, and Vale, got up on our first tries. After Wakeboarding, we jumped in the ocean and swam a little bit. After that, we took showers with the Hibiclense soap. We had a whole system with music and timers so that we could conserve water. After the showers, we set up for our incredible dinner of chili and rice. After we had a leadership activity and got ready for bed. Overall, today was a very eventful day, and I am excited to start doing more activities.
